Microsoft Offers Retail Solution Add-In: Better Late Than Never

Yesterday, Microsoft Corp. made available an integrated solution for small-business retailers in the U.S., combining Microsoft Office Small Business Accounting 2006 with Microsoft Point of Sale or Microsoft Retail Management System.
While this is great, Microsoft should have offered this kind of solution earlier. Cougar Mountain, a much smaller company, has offered this type of integration in their software already.
This free software add-in allows retailers to transfer point-of-sale data, such as transactions and purchase orders, directly into their financial management software. In addition to dramatic time savings and the reduction of manual data entry, the key benefit to small-business retailers is the ability to manage cash flow more effectively, thus helping improve profitability.
The software add-in was developed with EVT Solutions Inc. a Microsoft Certified Retail Management System Partner. It can be downloaded at no extra cost from the Microsoft Download Center here.
